My child is a teenager

If you are new to Triple P, you should start with a level-2 program then gradually progress according to your desires and your needs.

Please note: Triple P for teens is only available in English.

Level 2 - Selected Seminar Series

Each Select Seminar Series of three topics provides parents with general information about promoting their child’s development and serves as an introduction to Triple P – the Positive Parenting Program.

Each seminar lasts approximately 60 minutes including a question period at the end. These brief introductions to the Triple P strategies provide great ideas to try at home.

Level 2 - Triple P Café's

Brief Primary Care uses Triple P tip sheets to introduce parents to strategies that may be helpful to them when addressing specific parenting issues. The tip sheets can be reviewed individually or in small groups called "Triple P Cafés".

A follow-up session is done by phone to inquire about progress made and to plan the next steps, if further support is desired.

Over 50 topics are available. Some parents decide to stay at level 2 to review multiple tip sheets while other parents decide to move to level 3 in order to learn more versatile strategies.

Level 3 - Discussion Groups

Triple P Discussion Groups are two-hour sessions held with 10 to 12 parents. Each discussion group focuses on a specific predetermined topic.

In a relaxed setting, the provider gives tips and suggestions for dealing with a child's problem behavior. Short video clips are watched, showing other parents successfully dealing with the same issue. Exchange between participants is encouraged but is not mandatory.

Each participant receives a take-home workbook with simple exercises and information to help implement the new strategies at home.

Level 4 - Standard Groups

Standard Groups are made up of 10 to 12 parents going through similar situations. They are great opportunities to share stories and offer mutual support.

The provider gives tips and suggestions to fit the needs of each participant. Videos help demonstrate how the ideas work in real life. A workbook given to each participant includes the tools and information you need to start positive parenting right away at home.

Triple P Standard Groups are eight weeks long. For weeks 1 to 4 and 8, parents attend two-hour long in-class sessions with two practitioners. For weeks 5, 6 and 7, parents participate in 15-minute phone sessions with one practitioner to review how things are going in the home.
